To create this gray-mauve tone, the Doves used Wella Professionals Blondor Powder Lightener to remove the yellows from an already light-colored wig. They then added sheer pastel violet tones, using a combination of Koleston Perfect and Pastel Tone Developer. To style, they dried hair and used an InStyler Rotating Hot Iron to achieve root-lift and bend. The duo set locks in two-nger-width pin curls, and nger-teased to loosen waves, creating more separation before setting with a texturizing spray. Silver Vixens Timeless styles in radiant fashion hues comprise Neo Classic, a new futuristic-inspired collection by Christopher and Sonya Dove. Having just completed a project working on the color for the wigs featured in this month’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Lionsgate), Wella Professionals artists and iconic hairdressers Christopher and Sonya Dove felt inspired to create a new collection embodying their own thoughts on the hair looks of the future. The Doves’ vision was based on what they predict will be a paradigm shift from today’s older women taking fashion cues from the younger generation. “We were looking ahead to a time when the youth of tomorrow takes its fashion lead from when mature, sophisticated women—high-society, fancy gray-haired ladies—simply used stains and rinses over their gray hair,” Christopher says. “But for the looks of the future, these ladies would add their own spin to it.” The results are pumped-up pastels with touches of silver and illuminated violet and blue highlights set in classic shapes. All looks were created on light-colored wigs from the Raquel Welch collection by HairUWear.
